    Messages Icon not showing New text. When I receive a text message, the icon for the messages app does not show a number. I do get a popup notification, but really would like to have the number ticker working.

    The solution depends on the launcher you are using. I am not sure about the stock launcher, but launcher's like Nova have a built-in option to show unread counts.

    For this to work on nova you would need to install the premium version along with an app such as TelsaUnread

    Strange. My husband has the same phone. I send him a text, the little number appears on the yellow mail icon, he sends me one and nothing!.

    Depends. Are you using a launcher? What SMS app are you using.
